Golf Swing Tips

To improve your golf game, it’s vital that you take golf lessons. Golf is a sport that is almost impossible to learn without some sort of guidance. Luckily, there are golf experts around the country whose job it is to teach golf. By taking golf lessons, you can drastically improve your game in a relatively short amount of time. Taking golf lessons can be an expensive, time-consuming effort. And like any good or service that will cost money and require time, you should be careful before you buy.  Golf can be a really costly game to play and it is reasonable to assume that you have invested a fair amount of money in your equipment – golf clubs, golf bag, golf balls, golf clothing, golf cart etc; – therefore doesn’t it make common sense for you to learn how to use them to their advantage and improve your skills and capabilities?

Dave Pelz’s Putting Bible – golf’s least understood skill.

Extract from the book:

Speed Affects Break

The faster a ball rolls the less it will break on its way to the hole; the slower it rolls the more it will break. That’s an oversimplification but the concept is true. Here’s why:

Green-Reading the 15th Building Block 161

If the slope on a green is constant then the faster a ball rolls between its starting point and the hole the less it will break. This occurs because the faster a ball rolls the less time gravity has to act upon it (Figure 7.9.3). But there is a caveat to this situation. If you are going to roll your putt faster so you can play less break you’d better make the putt because it’s still going to break later on the other side of the hole as it slows down. And while it is slowing down it will be rolling away from the hole. This can be a problem when you attempt to make the putt coming back.

This rule – the faster the roll the less the break (on any given slope) – holds whether the faster ball speed is caused by the golfer initially rolling the putt faster because the green is slow or rolling it faster on a fast green to minimize the break. And while that rule is true so is its opposite: The slower you roll a ball to the hole (as long as you still get it there) the more it will break.

The Long Drive Bible: How You Can Hit the Ball Longer, Straighter, and More Consistently

Extract from the book:

Section 4.6 should prove to you that a pure simple pendulum can swing in three different motions all of which can relate to a putting stroke. The pendulum of a putting stroke (assuming the golfer has a pendulum and doesn ‘t hit with his hands or wrists or move his body) is the pendulum formed between his suspension point (between his shoulders) and his hands (Figure 4.7.1). And it is this position of a golfer’s hands the angle of his pendulum relative to vertical that determines not only the natural swing path of his putterhead but also the behavior of the putterface angle relative to the Aimline. (Note: your elbows and forearms don’t have to be under your shoulders just your hands.)

As shown on the bottom in Figure 4.7.2 when the golfer’s hands (pendulum

(A) = no rotation; Inclined (B) and (C) = screen-door rotations.

The Seven Building Blocks of Stroke Mechanics 79 balls in illustration) are outside his shoulders the screen-door stroke produces both a curved path around the golfer’s body and significant putterface angle rotation relative to the Aimline. This is where the in-line stroke shines as shown in the top figure: When the golfer’s hands (pendulum balls) are vertically under his shoulders his stroke path is not only naturally in-line with his Aimline his putter-face also stays square to the Aimline at all times. As you will see in section 4.8 this is an incredible advantage because the face angle is very influential in determining what line the ball starts rolling on in putting.

Great Putters Are Square

Do great putters rotate their putterfaces or do they keep them square through impact?

After we get through the remaining sections, you will understand that this will change your swing plane a bit. Your swing plane will become more horizontal, the straighter you stand up. Please realize that nothing else should change. You will swing each of your clubs in exactly the same fashion (found below). This repositioning at setup will have a huge effect on the outcome of your shot, so please take some time to see where you are the most comfortable.
